Persian Calligraphy makes a beautiful gift or souvenir

You can order a piece of calligraphy (nast'aliq or shekasteh) to be made especially for you. Just choose the poetry/motto/text of your interest. The fee can vary between $10 to $500, depending on the length of the text, medium, size, and some other details.
Samples of Persian Calligraphy (by Kioumars Poorhaydari) can be found below.
